Benefits of ERT (Estrogen Replacement Therapy)
Estrogen replacement therapy benefits can help you feel better if you are in menopause or if your hormone levels are low for other reasons. If you are in your 30s or 40s, you might be going through perimenopause. This is the stage prior to menopause, and it may last for several years. During this time, your estrogen levels begin dropping to the low levels that they will remain at after menopause. This can lead to some health issues that may affect your quality of life. Estrogen replacement therapy can get you back on track to a happier, healthier you.
ERT Helps Menopause Symptoms
An estrogen imbalance in your body because of menopause may cause uncomfortable symptoms for you, such as hot flashes and chills, trouble sleeping and sweating excessively. Natural estrogen replacement therapy or bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can relieve all of these symptoms and help you to feel like yourself again.
Estrogen’s Role in Vaginal Health
When you have less estrogen in your body, you might experience vaginal dryness. This can lead to irritation, painful sex and incontinence. HRT can improve your vaginal health, and in turn, this can make you more satisfied with your sex life.
As you get older, declines in estrogen levels can weaken your bones and make breaks more likely. Brittle bones are a normal part of aging, but they are not inevitable. Bioidentical estrogen can help strengthen your bones and may be more effective with fewer side effects than some other medications that perform a similar function.
